    This was written by Peter Ndlovu in an online newspaper column. --- This month our regular columnist Peter Ndlovu recalls an unsavoury incident from the African Cup of Nations.

  4. Left-wing Journalist Is A Very Silly Boy Shock

    Independent columnist Johann Hari has admitted copying the work of others (including it would seem Ann Leslie of the Daily Mail) to improve his articles. He has also apologised for editing the Wikipedia entries of people he had clashed with, using the pseudonym David Rose, "I took out nasty...

    Kia Abdullah's amusement at toffs' fatal crash

    Occasional Grauniad columnist Kia Abdullah really is a charming girl. She's taking 'class warfare' to a low that I'm sure certain SZ posters would enjoy. Is this the politics of envy? Seems like it to me. Make your own mind up - link Personally, despite my own abhorrence of her comments, I...

    England Preview

    WHAT’S THE MAIN FOCUS FOR ENGLAND? Here in the UK, we’re all still stuck in the mire of what has inevitably been dubbed ‘BridgeGate’. You might think that weeks of press speculation, pages of gossip, one sacking, one resignation and one very publicly snubbed handshake would be enough to satiate...

    The College Football Thread

    I've been meaning to start a College Football thread since the season started, and now that the Crimson Tide are number one in the AP and BCS rankings, I've finally got round to it....... It pains me to say it, but I don't see Alabama as the Number One team in the country, but they will play...

    Wicked Whispers

    Extraordinary scenes at The Emirates this week where journalists in town for the big clash between Arsenal and Liverpool were served up with a little sporting hors deouvre as two respectable, well known British hacks went for each other's throats and had to be seperated by their colleagues. The...

    Arsenal v Liverpool

    Arsene Wenger was left baffled by his team's failure to beat Liverpool in an intruiging contest at The Emirates, but refused to agree that their opponent's away goal made them favourites to progress to the last four. Arsenal certainly had the better of the game, particularly in the second half...

    Question Time last night

    Whilst some of you were boozing it up last night I sat at home and watched Question Time. It featured the world's two most arrogant men in brothers Christopher and Peter Hitchens. Anyway, watching it I couldn't concentrate when Peter Hitchens (odious Daily Mail columnist) was speaking because...

    $tevie Me - How does he get away with it?

    New column up on 4sportsake this morning and it's a bit controversial. I've had all sorts of abuse from the Liverpool fans in the office, but also a lot of support from everyone else. Simple really - How does Steven Gerrard get away with everything and still get lauded as a hero? If you get a...
